LISTS!!! Names are nothing without lists. Even what army is an improvement.

Also, I hope those are Surname first (why?!?) because otherwise I feel very sorry for Strange Michael.

Colby Anger, you're my hero.

If they choose to post their lists, they can.

They are indeed surname first.

Well of course they can. Which Codex they used is surely a basic requirement though. It's hardly privileged information, I could defraud them with merely their name, were I skilled and motivated enough to do so. Saying Michael Strange used Tyranids is hardly any benefit to the hacker community.

Guess you should've shown up to play to find out for yourself then, hmm?

Anyone who wants to post their relative codex may, and if you would like for us to add it into the main list, drop me a PM or an email or something and I'll do my best to accomodate you.

In some ways, that's better, IMO.

Any chance I could get emailed a copy of this quiz? Promise not to cheat, I'm quite curious about it tbh. Certainly a fun idea.

Don't knock the triple machinegun Chimeras. In the end they ended up tearing decent chunks out of units over the course of the tournament. ;)

By the time the last round came about and I had to face off against Mike Strange again, he knew better than to ignore them and used both of his dakkafexes' firepower to keep them out of commission for most of the game.

TheKingElessar
08-27-2009, 10:43 AM
My first suggestion was in fact the CCS. I don't think the Banner is points-effective, at least without Straken. I also don't rate single OotF very highly. :)

Madigan
08-27-2009, 11:17 AM
In hindsight, the Fleet Officer did almost nil for me (except against Chaos Daemons, where it kept 3 squads of plaguebearers and a greater deamon from showing up until turn 4+). I should have spent the points on two bodyguards instead.

The banner was priceless, though. Saved me from getting run down in combat when I didn't want two on two occasions, and prevented post-vehicle-explosion pinning well over a dozen times in the course of my 7 games.

TheKingElessar
08-27-2009, 11:31 AM
I also don't rate Heavy Weps in Vets, Plasma Vets, or Fists on Vets, while we're discussing the list...

Agreed this was not the most optimized list that IG can throw out there. However it was one I knew would be fun to play with, was fairly competitive, and hopefully included some interesting units that are not in every IG army.

I was also limited to what I had painted the morning of the tournament. For instance the HB on the Infantry will be Autocannons, the Missile in Harkerís unit will be an Autocannon, to make the army better against Rhino rush. I really hate having to use one of my Heavy Tanks to deal with a Rhino that has to die that turn.

*shrugs*

I found them all to be very useful for their purpose, namely taking out greater daemons, 'Nid MCs, terminators, and low-AV transports.

Except maybe the fists... I just had them there because I have some Billy Bad-*** powerfist/shotgun Sgt. models that I converted that I REALLY wanted to use during the tournament. And WYSIWYG being a very important staple of BoLSCON, I didn't want to bring my custom Sgts. then have to "Counts As" them as just naked shotgun-toting Sgts.

And yes, the meltagun Vets had shotguns. I don't want to hear about how stupid charging anything is with IG Vets. I don't care. Shotguns are AWESOME, in my opinion. Just 'cause.

Boom Clickity Klack

KINGS
08-27-2009, 01:24 PM
There were several times...
ME: "now I charge with my vets..."
GUY: "what do they have that can hurt my tank?"
ME: "...krak grenades"

Shotguns on vets are awesome, but only my Harker unit has them. The others have lasguns which are good for orders. For instance I would never give a unit with Bastonne shotguns.

TheKingElessar
08-27-2009, 05:51 PM
I'd preferably use them in conjunction with Melta Bombs...even though I'd probably not throw the Demo Charge.

Um... Adam Tricola (7th overall) I was playing Blood Angels, not CSM. I ended up losing my last game to Ben (my only real 'loss' of the tournament), sad day for me, but he was a great opponent, and if you're gonna lose, may as well lose to someone you like :P
